The other issue to watch with formatting is to ensure that your colors print out correctly especially if you have used color on the screen but it prints out in black and white. Some colors do not print out well on black and white printers. Issue 4: Hide Unused Cells One of the biggest mistakes I see people do with templates is to not hide any unused cells. Having unhidden cells runs the risk that your team may put in information in the wrong position or they may believe they need to put more information in than they need to. Always hide your unused cells.
Issue 1: Protect the Worksheet and Cells The first issue when creating a template is to ensure that your worksheet and cells are protected. For example the cells you want people to put data into should not have protection applied and the headlines you need to use to explain where to put the data into should in fact be protected. Further to this in Microsoft Excel 2003 you can set that cells that are protected cannot be selected and I recommend that all headline areas are set in this way.. Issue 2: Lock the Workbook against Structural Changes There are different levels of security in Microsoft Excel such as security at the cell level worksheet level and workbook level.
By using excel templates it is far easier to analyze the conditions for future performance of stocks shares commodities and a business as a whole. Basic data such as revenue variables and fixed costs can provide calculations whereby valuation becomes simple. Unlike other software related to financial matters excel templates are easy to use. They require only the minimal input which though often subjective can help in providing the correct analysis. Quantifiable values help in understanding the best weighting in terms of capital that is used for a variety of assets.
